of them hurt by falling glass. nasa saying the meteor was about 50 feet and impact may have been 30 times stronger than the atomic bomb that hit hiroshima. drivers are searching a frozen lake, this one near where it landed. 20,000 searchers looking for remains of the meteor but so far they haven't found any. >> kelly: we have to check this out. an amazing video, an unrelated asteroid flying past earth, this one was much bigger and could have been more dangerous. it doesn't look so bad within safe within our atmosphere but this nasa of an makes shows the path of 150 foot asteroid. it came within 17,000 miles of earth's surface and something so large has come to our planet. scientists have been keeping a very close eye on this one, but there are a lot -- they have never seen them coming this big. >> heather: here to add to that, a mysterious sighting, this one even closer to home. reports of a bright light flashing through the sky, this was in northern california. >> kelly: look at that. >> heather: you can see flying by on the right hand corner of your screen, witnesses saying it looked li
? deflected in tehran or something like that? >> andrea: doesn't it make you nervous that nasa is being dismantled by the administration? how are we supposed to know when they are coming? >> bob: nasa was not who intercepted this. it was department of defense. it was not nasa. >> andrea: right. nasa doesn't have anything to do with space. >> bob: i don't think the republicans. this is a waste of time. if it hits your house, well -- this is not hateful. i don't want it to hit your house. if it hits the russians, too bad, too. any human being, too bad. with the exception of a few i can think of. >> eric: this is irrelevant. [ overtalk ] bronc you upset about that? >> eric: no. everything is fine. can we point out the weekend away that the department of homeland security spent the money on, they spent money on $40 billion in various projects like in arizona $90,000 to fund and install video monitoring system for security cameras in chicago. guess what happened? never put security camera up? >> andrea: what is going on? >> dana: this is strange. i understand a training video for a lot of th
apparently unfounded. nasa is using radar and other technology to study how the asteroid behaves, including its rotation rate, its composition and how it's impacted by the earth's gravity. the idea is to learn enough to prevent cat as it sfroe fee from it threatening in the future. >> we're going to get a lot of information about the asteroid. we're interested in its future motion, whether or not it could come back, whether it threatens the earth. >> reporter: the odds are either this one or another will be back. an asteroid impact the earth about every 120 years on average. it will be visible in the rthernemisphere this evening if you have access to a telescope. for now it's on its way away from the earth out into outer space harmlessly rotating -- or resolving -- excuse me. harmlessly rotating -- i can't even think of the right word. orbiting the sun. harmlessly at least for now, jim. >> casey, thanks very much. we appreciate it. ? or gal lat particular news, a meteor lit up the skies over eastern russia. the blinding light was followed by a series of deafening explosions. listen to this.
nervous now that nasa is beingng dismantled by this administration? how are we supposed to know -- >> i thought nasa was supposed to do outreach to the muslim community. >> oh, right. >> it was the department of defense. >> no. >> it was not nasa. >> you're right. does -- doesn't have anything to do with space, bob. >> no, no. i think it's waste of time.is asteroid is going to come, what is it going to do? if it hits your house, well, it's a sad thing. i don't want it to hit your house or anybody. if it. hits the russians, that's too bad, too. if it hits any human, it's toong bad. with the exception of a few i could thinkep of. >> that's irrelevant right now. >> therec: are 1,000 people wha? >> are you upset about this? >> no. can we point out that video, that weekend away that the department of homeland security spent all that money on, they also spent money, somewhere around $40 billion over the last ten years on various projects like in arizona where these 90na grand to fund and install video monitoring systems at the peoria sports complex to put securityer cameras in chicago and the
'm not a professor but -- >> i'm not actually an expert, so it's okay. how do we miss that? >> the thing is, nasa really is tracking thousands of objects that are objects of interest near earth asteroids. this thing was small and frankly the direction it was coming from was towards the sun. so we didn't see it. sometimes we spot things just days before they pass by. and some things we track for years in advance. >> so this we just barely -- or unfairly, we missed. we could miss other stuff. should we pour money into equipment or technology that would see more of that stuff, however small? i'm all for putting money into nasa. it's half a percent of our budget. only a small fraction of that goes towards this, monitoring the earth's asteroids. it might be important in the long run. but like i said, they do track some things for years. there's many things that we're aware of. but the solar system is not eight planets, there are millions of objects making up the solar system. >> you say you're not a professor, you come off as a very good one. thank you very much. i appreciate it. >> thanks. >> neil: i
. >> if you thought flying fighter jets was exhilaratinexh, he was about to take off in another gear. >> nasa a looking for the next batch of the astronauts. >> specifically african-americans, what did you think your chances were. >> i didn't think my chances were very high. >> with nearly 10,000 applicants competing for just 35 flights, his chances were slim, but guy was one of three african-american astronauts, made it through. so, what kind of personality makes it into space? >> well, you have to be a person that can get along with a the lot of different people, but you also have to be a team player. >> were you anxious? >> i was excited about flying so i think we were well portrayed. interestingly enough when you rocket into space, it's almost like riding a simulator. the simulations are so good in the ground almost like you've been there before. >> harris: now you find out your mission has been moved up and you're actually going to be the first african-american in space. what goes through your mind? >> well, i was just excited about flying. but i also recognized the importance of the rol
: how much warning do we get? >> nasa tracks these things. they're able to track 90% of the asteroids that could come close to us. but in this case, there was really no warning. people don't know what's going on. >> brian: i remember in the video game, you could shoot an asteroid out of the sky. i know in armageddon, in the movies, bruce willis and ben affleck were able to -- who else was in that? were able to stop it. is that what we're going to have to do at some point? >> nasa does track these things and they have the capability to stop them before they come close to earth. >> brian: lasers? >> all sorts of things. >> steve: there has been a nasa plan to send some sort of ship onto an asteroid, but once again, the asteroid that's going to come between us and some of our satellites later today, that's going to be far away, right? >> it's relatively close. the closest they've come in centuries. so that's why people are a little nervous. but no, it's not going to hit us. >> alisyn: let us know if there is ever one coming, all right? >> brian: even if we're in sports or in an interview
to be amateur astronomers right now. those people have the most eyes on the sky. even nasa is looking at the skies but in terms of shear numbers, there are lots of people out in their backyards with telescopes looking up at the sky and this -- asteroid that missed us was discovered by amateurs. >> i knew save the world. dave mosier good to see you this morning. thanks for insight. appreciate it unbelievable video high speed police chase horrific ending. car crashing right into the cruiser. whole thing caught on camera. this happens way too much. and then for the first time in almost 600 years the pope has resigned. if you have got a lifelong career, like the pontiff, when is the right time to call it quits? fbn nicole petallides is here to talk about retirement coming up. hey nicole. she will be in here in a second. at a dry cleaner, we replaced people with a machine. what? customers didn't like it. so why do banks do it? hello? hello?! if your bank doesn't let you talk to a real person 24/7, you need an ally. hello? ally bank. your money needs an ally. we don't let frequent heartburn
to nasa's jet propulsion laboratory, where they're keeping a close eye on what's going on. >> wolf, we're inside the deep space network operation center at the jet propulsion laboratory at nasa's facility in pasadena, california. it's at the jet propulsion lab, where nasa will be monitoring that asteroid. it's called 2012 da-14, because it was discovered last year. that's an artist rendering of it, but they're going to be looking at the real thing when it passes very close to earth on friday, mid-day. it's going to pass within about 17,200 miles of earth. that's a lot closer than the moon is to the earth. it's also within the satellite ring. about 5,000 miles within the ring of satellites that hover above the earth's surface. what can we really expect from that asteroid has it passes close to earth? i'm here with paul, a research astronomer with nasa's near-earth object program. paul, let's get this out of the way. does this threaten earth? is it going to impact earth? >> no, we've been tracking this closely for a year and we know it will not hit the earth. >> what about the satellites
the second. >> the project pre sently received 5 million in funding from nasa. one in russia insisted it was not a meteor, but john considerry a new weapons of mass destruction from texas in the united states. one of president obama's favorite spots to grab a bit. ray's hell burger, reportedly owes overdue rent and court fees and a second location closed for business and president obama has visited the spot with vice-president biden and russian president med investiga med did he ha med-- >> and how does he stay so-- >> those restaurants are popular in northern virginia, it's hard to believe. >> clayton: have you even at ray's hell burger. >> tucker: i don't, but the traffic. always packed. >> clayton: and how do you have $39,000 in back rent to pay? if they're lining out the door. let's talk about a new census bureau study revealing what it means to be middle class. certainly obviously during the campaign we hear the term middle class, both sides playing to try to the middle class. the president during his state of the union used middle class eight times, but what does it mean? here i
? >> nasa has a program to search for these objects and we've done a good job at finding the large ones. we put the priority on finding the large one first. the one that hit on friday was really a tiny asteroid, pretty small. >> anna: it's wild that this tiny one caused this much damage. you say mostly what you're looking for are the ones that are 400 feet in size and up, right? >> yes. a city block and larger. those are ones that would reach the surface. the one that hit over russia was broken up by the atmosphere. so there was only the damage from the shock wave. the larger ones, if they reach the surface in one piece, can cause great damage. >> peter: when you talk about the larger ones, what are we talking about? something as big as a kilometer? do those exist? >> oh, yes. oh, yes. and that's about a half mile. nasa has done a good job of finding 95% of those ones. the idea is to find them many, many years before they could hit the earth and calculate when and where the hazard is and if there is a hazard sometime in the future, then we could possibly do something about it. >> steve: now
with the earth. here's how the n.a.s.a. folks explained what could happen. >> astroid 2012da14 is an object about half the size. a football field in diameter that is going to pass very close to the earth on february 15th. coming from the south to the north it gets to within 17,200 miles of the earth's surface and will pass the interior to the gps satellites, but there's no chance of the as street hitting the earth and very little chance it will hit a satellite. >> they were right. they say this was the closest fly-by ever of a space rock of this size. and it was traveling at more than 17,000 miles an hour. that's it for us tonight. thank for watching. i'm juan williams in for bill o'reilly. please remember, the spin comes here because we are looking out for you.
five million in funding from nasa. in the end of the day. it is the president's decision and i can't believe one democratic colleague is not upset enough to speak out. >> stiantor graham called hagel a radical choice and in an exclusive interview with chris wallace, graham made the case for putting the brakes on. >> nomination of former senator chuck hagel is on hold. do you think he will succeed when we get back from tha brake? >> it is it interesting, we talked about with several people on the i thought so in the beginning of the show and not so sure by the end of the show. lindsay graham is leading the charge and holding upment nomination and he got something moments before going on the air. there a blog report that hagel had said that the state department, that the u.s. state department was adjunct of the israeli foreign ministry and that he thinks israel has an undue influence on the foreign policy. hagel said i never said and i do i want believe it we'll see. to graham is that enough. he said let's make sure it is true. if it turned out it is not true and he could be in serio
